While his Lakers lost their opener, LeBron James still wowed the gallery with his big performance. A star of the orange ball even praised the performance of the King, on social networks! This will make him happy!
LeBron James and the Lakers were quick to put the 2020-21 disappointment behind them, but their new campaign began the same way the previous one ended: with loss. The Warriors proved far too strong for Frank Vogel’s men, who lost 121-114 in a game they dropped in the final quarter. We note in particular the big failure signed Russell Westbrook, very clumsy (4/13 shooting, 4 losses of balls).
Still, while the Brodie clearly missed his official competitive debut, the King got the job done, and not just a little. James was very strong against the Dubs, ending the game with 34 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists as well as a new NBA record. Angelino fans can rest easy, the ankle injury last year doesn’t seem to bother him at all. What to approach the continuation with more serenity.
Damian Lillard impressed with LeBron James’ big game
What is certain is that the performance of the Chosen One did not go unnoticed, as he has dominated as he goes on his 37 years. Internet users raved about his performance on social networks, but players have also given their opinion. Among the latter, Damian Lillard in particular allowed himself a comment, as short as it was clear. Clearly, he validates LeBron’s match!
Nate Jones: LeBron looks good
Lillard: It’s a fact
Obviously, many have taken this as a declaration of love for the Quadruple Champion, as proof that Dame D.O.L.L.A still wishes to join the City of Angels. It must be said that rumors were rife during the summer, and Lillard has long been seen as a confident Californian rookie. In the end, it was Westbrook who was caught, but the gossip didn’t stop.
Still, it might just as well be a tribute to LBJ. After all, men have been around and loving each other for quite a few years now, and a deep respect has built up between them over time. That’s not to say that Lillard won’t give it all in a future matchup between Portland and LA. See you on November 7 for a poster that promises to be enticing.
LeBron is already impressing people, and this is only the first game. If he keeps up the momentum, we could well see an all-time season of the King!
